Evan Buckner of Pine Bluff is one of 12 University of Arkansas at Fayetteville students to earn a scholarship from money raised at the 19th annual Delta Scholarship Golf Classic.


Buckner, an incoming freshman and a crop science major, received one of four James L. Barrentine Endowed Scholarships, according to a news release.


Barrentine, a former environmental soil and water science department head, organized alumni and friends who initiated the benefit golf tournament to support scholarships.
